The research and development already underway at ODU’s Applied Research Center (ARC) at Jefferson Lab in Newport News, Virginia, is expected to accelerate the time to market for the Spectral technology.
The Spectral coating technology research project — officially titled “Highly-Transmissive Colored Coatings for Architectural Photovoltaic Panels” — is supported in part by a competitive grant from Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology. The $100,000 grant was the maximum amount approved among the 34 Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund (CRCF) awards announced in June by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.
More information on the Spectral coating is available at The Face Companies.
